Christian Science healed me of...

Christian Science healed me of disillusionment and nervous exhaustion many years ago, and brought great comfort and joy into my life.

Before becoming interested in this Science people often wonder what life is and what its purpose is. During my last years at school and the first few of employment, I often asked this question of men and women of learning, responsibility, and experience in different walks of life, without obtaining any really satisfying answer. I looked as far as was then possible for me to look into medicine, religions, ethics, psychoanalysis, and so forth, but without results, until finally I lost my ideals and felt life was shallow and meaningless.

Although I was normally strong and healthy, my health and memory began to fail, and I suffered from chronic insomnia and its attendant ills. In spite of having no faith in medicine, I was compelled to consult a doctor, who recommended my giving up all thoughts of a career and living a quiet country life. I rebelled at this verdict. The doctor then prescribed the strongest sleeping draught he dared and said that was all he could do. The medicine was taken for two or three nights, but it had little effect and I threw it away.
